ChipnDip and Amber LS - I am very careful NOT to keep any clothes that are my former size. The moment I can squeeze into the smaller size, off goes a big bag to the thrift store.

As to whether this is effective or not, I do know that there are times that I am facing temptation where I remind myself I have no larger clothes to wear - it does help.

I think it is important to let yourself know that you WILL NOT go backwards and by ceremoniously getting rid of larger clothes you are reinforcing the direction you want to go.
